At Red Hall Primary School, we are currently developing our music curriculum offer to create an enjoyable and engaging experience of music for all children. Our intent is for music to help all children express their creativity and increase their self-confidence and not only enrich the individual lives of our children, but bring our school community together through shared singing, performance and a love of music.
At present, our Key Stage 2 children receive specialist music teaching from Dudley Performing Arts. Years 3 and 4 children have weekly Fife lessons, where they are taught performance skills along with learning about musical dimensions and developing their listening skills. Years 5 and 6 have weekly singing lessons where they learn about pitch and tone and develop their singing techniques.
In Key Stage One and EYFS, music is embedded into the daily routine. Starting in Summer Term 2022, classes will follow the Kapow music scheme for their weekly music lessons.
Throughout their musical journey at Red Hall, we want to give children access to an engaging and fun music curriculum reflecting the world and the communities they live in now, but at the same time giving them access to musical styles from all around the world and across generations. We hope to provide this as our music curriculum develops.
